This miniscule screen makes even the sveltest of sets look like fatties.

You want a thin screen? ITRI's got your thin screen. The Taiwanese research company has a new flexible AMOLED that comes in at a tenth of a millimeter. It may even be easier to say that it measures just 100 micrometers.

The tech company gives credit to a new technology called Flex UPD, which the company developed for its paper like qualities.

The sour note with all cool OLED and AMOLED news is that as usual there are no plans to develop this for larger scale applications. That means the coolest new screens around will be used for cell phones, MP3 players and e-readers instead of our television sets.
